2004 Nissan 350Z Coupe 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Bought this car brand new and have loved every mile. Do not buy this car if you have a lead foot or if you don't like attention. It's FAST and only made for two people. Long trips get a little tiring but the mileage is great for a sports coupe with this much power. Easy to make this car really custom with bigger rims and tires and small style touches. Don't buy this car if you don't know how to drive, it's 100% a driver's car.


Best Features

Getting 23mpg in a 287hp sports car. Getting nods from people with much more expensive cars when I paid 23k for mine.


Worst Features

Early years have tire issues, transmission whines on cold days, long trips hurt your back but it's a sports car, HEY NISSAN...PUT CRUISE CONTROL ON BASE MODEL. Passenger cupholder is prone to breaking. Very little leg room for tall folks.

Review

This is a very fun to car to drive! One of the best values out there. The only things that can beat it are the STi and mitsubishi evo, but then you have to deal with thier spoilers and tough ride quality. The car is very quick and makes a beautiful noise while your on the throttle inside and out. Handling is excellent and acceleration is quick right from the dealer. I paid 22,000 grand for mine used, 0-60 in 5.4, brembo brakes, great exhaust note, great looks and you got a deal of the year. Sure you can get a Mitsubishi evo or a Subaru STi for around the same price or a used one cheaper but then you deal with jarring suspension and huge spoilers and street racer looks. Z is a great deal.


Best Features

Perfectly placed shifter, pedals, and sterring wheel and excellent sight lines. Its very easy to find the right driving posistion in about 10 seconds. The noise of the exhaust is one of the best I've heard. Handling and acceleration are superb. Great looks, Great acceleration and great suspension


Worst Features

No glove box to hold insurance info or other stuff. Harsh ride setup for track model, I feel like i can feel every pebble i run over. Bad visibility out rear view mirror and blind spots. Digital speedomoter on trip computer is inacurate with speeds above 60. Shows im doing 86 when dials read 70

Review

I really like driving this car, everyday I get in the driverseat and go! It feels like driving a jet to me and the inertia (drifting) driving is my favorite thing about it. The feeling of not being in control but being in control get the passengers a pulse driving ride (pros only)! And I feel safe while driving it because the car just hugs whoever is inside and it also hugs the road just as good! i hope this review gives you potential Z car buyers no regrets.


Best Features

I love the sound of the VQ and the flash headlamps are a plus also, yeah the car looks like a frog but its the bastest frog on the planet!


Worst Features

I suggest the interior be redesigned. I'm not saying I dont like the all black Interior, but it could be ''smoother''

Review

I got my car a year ago let me list the problems. I have had to replace the brakes that was at 20 thousand miles I put the NISMO pads on at a cost of almost 800 dollars! mind you I dont drive it hard I mean that! The factory wouldn't warranty it because it's "wear" and use! I bought new rims for it hear a growling noise bring it in they say its normal had a tire blow out on me and I had to pay for the rim and tire not to mention there was a recall because of some problem with alignment yet I voided that by putting after market rims on it! The heater just went out haven't found out if that's covered by warranty or not yet and the head lamps fog up not due to moisture some BS. that's all I can fit


Best Features

My favorite thing about the car is it is fun to drive and the performance I got for the money! I enjoy driving it when it works right! That's about it


Worst Features

I hate where the placement of the seat controlls are if I have to go behind the seat its a real pain moving it all the way forward and the heated seats don't work for a damn! I won't ever buy another car from Japan again EVER! This is a small chunk of what I hate about the car!
